Master story teller

Past Tiga Suku

Tiga Suku

As his usual self

Fantastic memories

If you still cannot recognise him. Here is a mugshot

David and Kathy Lam hosted a surprise warm pot luck birthday party in their home on 23 August 2016. It was Kathy’s and birthday boys Lt Kol David Hermon's and Lt Kol H’ng Hung Meng's bash. We asked the boys how old were they. David Herman replied 70ish and Hung Meng said he was “tiga suku”.

These pictures reflect the closeness of some old Gunners. The night was filled with old stories, many not heard before, particularly stories from David Hermon and Mejar Andrew Teoh, who were senior enough to be in the know. David Hermon, Hung Meng, Andrew and David Lam had served in 1 ARTY. They were of Kajang vintage. We were awed by their episodes and encounters during the Konfrontasi days in Sarawak; of gun firefight in Lubuk Antu; of the 108 rounds Gun Salute using the 25 pounders which were notoriously known for misfires. The barrels were obviously melting hot. But alas the night ended too soon.

I propose the Gunners Club organize a get-together, specifically for the purpose of sharing old stories and of course to have it recorded on video / tape. Lest we forget.

Always a Gunner.

Visiting Lt Kol Maskan bin Katan on 2-6-2016

Lunch time

With Maskan ( From left. Allen Lai, Lee Kong Kok, Omar Mohd, David Lam, Heerah Singh

Yesterday 5  retired Gunners visited Lt Kol Maskan bin Katan at his home in Seremban. Maskan has been ill for sometime now. He is bed-ridden but in good spirit.  The visit was well coordinated by Lt Kol Lee Kong Kok who also resides in Seremban.

We are all pleased that Maskan has recovered somewhat over the past several months when we last visisted him in the Seremban General Hospital. We will continue to pray for his speedy recovery to full health. Our visits would be a great morale booster for Maskan.

We were all treated to a sumptuous lunch at his house, whilst waiting to see him after his daily rawatan kampung.

Take care all.
